I've seen a whole bunch of sites that have a box that pop open and stay open at the bottom of the website - like a 1 inch strip at the bottom of the page. not sure if i can post a link or not but i just saw it on terrydean.org , although i've seen it on several sites this week but can't recall the url's. it seems like a reasonably common thing on some sites, so hopefully someone will know what i'm talking about.
is there a name for this type of effect? and most importantly - does anyone know if there's a plugin to do this in wordpress?
